  1. onedrive files on demand problems

    some buggy apps cause files on demand to download all files on onedrive to the local drive and there is no way to stop it within the onedrive app. the only solution is to find the buggy app and end task it.

  5. OneDrive uploads deleted files again

    If I delete a large amount of files on PC1, sync and then turn on PC2, PC2 starts uploading those files again (there were still local copies of those files on PC2).

    Causes chaos and makes the cloud service useless.

  6. "executable" file flag?

    I have data mixed with scripts and each time I download them back, I have to adjust the executable flag (I tried it with files stemming from an NTFS and EXT4 source, respectively).
    Can you fix it?

  7. We need to be able to download files from OneDrive with their time and date modified not their date downloaded

    To be much use as a backup, it is essential that OD is able to download files from the cloud to our computers with the time and date they had when uploaded. The current system updates to the download time and date, making OD almost useless as an off-site backup solution. Please at least give us the option to do this. At the moment it is only of value as a backup for files created in the last day or two, meaning that another off-site back up is required (eg, an external hard-drive). In hope - despite OD's problems, I…

  9. Changing a user account's name doesn't update the 2 year deletion email alerts

    I had a user that got married. Her primary UPN changed because we use first initial, last name. She has had full access to OneDrive since we made the change nearly two years ago and uses it semi-frequently. Even the User Profile in SharePoint reflects the new name. I left her old user UPN as a secondary Alias in her account so that she will still receive email to her form name/email address. Everything works well. However, she just got an email to her former name/email address from Microsoft stating that her OneDrive account will be delete due to inactivity.…

  10. Don't change my album cover photo after I add new photos

    Sometimes, the cover photo I chose for my album is changed to a random one when I add new photos to the album. I think this is a bug. Please fix it. Thanks.

  11. You need to allow people I give the permission link to access that file without signing in to MSN.

    I give people a link that says "anyone with this link can view" but people are receiving the link and being told they have to sign in to MSN account. They don't have an MSN account so they cannot view the file. Again the permission says "anyone with the link can view" NOT "anyone with an MSN account and a link can view"

  12. Fix the audio skipping glitch on the OneDrive video player.

    Hi, I'm a lyric video artist. I send a couple of videos a day to different clients all over the world.

    I host all my work on OneDrive, and at least half of my clients report a glitch in the audio when they try to first play the video. I always instruct them to download the file and play it locally to see that the glitch isn't in the video itself.

    I already did the screen recording to show OneDrive support where it happens a few times, they said their engineers were looking at it, but that was months ago…

  13. Action multiple selected items

    When searching for files, the system allows selection of multiple items, but the top menu bar disappears, which means you can select multiple items but cannot action them.

    This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

  14. Fix date taken on videos uploaded from mobile or pc

    Date taken for videos is being interpreted incorrectly when displayed on ONE Drive. Modified date is usually correct. When the video is downloaded to my PC in the synched one drive folder, Windows Photo Gallery displays the date correctly. See the text file attached which is a copy of a forum post that describes the issue.

  16. Bugs onedrive webviewer for videos and powerpoint documents

    1) Onedrive: if a person open a shared link of a video (.mp4) with white background, the webviewer shows the play, pause or stop button in the middle of the video in white color, so it's not possible to see these buttons. White buttons with a black border will be the solution!

    2) Onedrive: if a person open a shared link of a powerpoint document the webviewer don't show the recorded laserpointer.

    3) Onedrive: if a person open a shared link of a powerpoint document the webviewer shows time recorded animations always at beginning of the page and not in…

  17. UPN change

    Changing of UPN in AD/AzureAD causes separation and sync issues with OneDrive for Business. No other Office 365 application appears affected. Currently no way to force a UPN change on the OneDrive side and we are being told that re-syncing the library is the only way to fix the issue.
